Long Urun in dire need of a clinic

Date:

KUCHING: There is a pressing need for a clinic to be built in Long Urun to serve its nearby residents, said Murum assemblyman Kennedy Chukpai Ugon.

He hoped that the project to build the clinic would be implemented swiftly to cater for the needs of residents to obtain medical services.

“We have submitted the proposal for the construction of this health clinic to Deputy Health Minister Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang during his visit to Sungai Asap and Tubau on July 14.

“The Health Department has given us the green light to build this health clinic in collaboration with the private sector as their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme to expedite the construction process,” he said.

He said this in a Facebook post on Thursday after a visit to the proposed site of the Long Urun health clinic.

Chukpai said the location for the new clinic is strategically placed in the middle of the settlement of the Long Urun residents.

“I am very grateful and thankful to the plantation company Urun Plantation Sdn Bhd for being willing to work with us to build this clinic as part of their CSR to the residents of Long Urun.

“Here there are 20 Penan and Kenyah settlement longhouses where the plantation company agreed to give a piece of land (five acres) in their Provisional Lease (PL) for this clinic site.

“Let us all pray that the construction of this clinic can be implemented smoothly because it is a very urgent need for our community here,” he said.

Chukpai said this is especially during the period of Covid-19 where it is difficult for residents to go to the Sungai Asap health clinic for medical services.
